Learning to Live Mindfully: Cultivating Kindness

Kindness is an expression of love, a way of being present with oneself and others that is open, authentic and strong. It creates the atmosphere for genuine communication and harmony and has the power to transform.

Meditation practice is a gesture of kindness. In meditation we strengthen our ability to be present with our self unconditionally, interested in what is happening here and now, rather than wishing to be someone or somewhere else.   It is a way to tune into and care for our wholeness which naturally spills over into our relationships with others.

This workshop will introduce basic mindfulness awareness meditation practice and a loving kindness contemplation practice as ways to cultivate kindness to oneself, others and our world. Open to everyone!
